"It will end, soon. But before it does, a lot more people have got to die." That's the basic thesis of Brad Pitt's "Fury." Set against the backdrop of World War II as it draws to a close, Pitt stars as a sergeant named Wardaddy who leads a tank crew of American soldiers into Germany. (Jon Bernthal, Michael Pena and Shia LaBeouf are Wardaddy's longtime battle comrades; Logan Lerman plays the group's newcomer.) The whole thing looks comfortably familiar -- a beat from "Inglourious Basterds" here, some from "Saving Private Ryan" there -- but it's never not compelling. "Fury" is set for release on Nov. 14, meaning it could either become one of Sony's year-end awards contenders or simply a solid money-maker for the studio. Or maybe both: The last time Pitt and Sony teamed up for a film, it was 2011's "Moneyball," which earned $74 million at the North American box office and six Oscar nominations. Watch the "Fury" trailer below.
